5MP Color CMOS Cameras, with 32MB on-Board Memory


Mightex USB 2.0 cameras with frame buffers are optimized for machine-vision applications, and they can also be used for a wide variety of other applications such as digital microscopy and medical imaging, where quality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness are crucial. These cameras have built-in frame buffers, external trigger-in, strobe-out, and a powerful camera engine that supports multiple cameras. The frame rate can be as high as 6 fps in full resolution and up to 300 fps using ROI mode. In addition, a user-friendly GUI based application software and an SDK are provided for custom software development. A DirectShow driver and a TWAIN driver are included, and a USB command set protocol is provided for non-Windows based applications. A Linux Driver is also available upon request.

USB2.0 powered – no need for external power supply.

[Note: Board-level cameras are designed for OEM applications, when a system-level enclosure is usually provided. One should be properly grounded when handling a board-level camera, in order to avoid Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) related damages. ESD related damages (which are considered as mis-handling) are not covered by product warranty. For lab use, it is strongly recommended that one choose an enclosed camera, instead of a board-level one.]
